Tony Rinaudo is known as “The Forest Maker.” His pioneering work on Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) since 1983 has revived millions of hectares from desolate dry ground to thriving arable land across more than twenty countries in Africa. This rehabilitation brings with it increased food security and sustainability for thousands of communities. Rinaudo’s work has earned him numerous awards and accolades including being named a 2018 Right Livelihood Laureate (often referred to as the “Alternative Nobel Prize”). As World Vision’s Principal Climate Action Advisor and Natural Resources Management Specialist, Rinaudo teaches FMNR and offers hope in God’s name to farming communities around the world.
